MDC president Nelson Chamisa told party officials working in an unholy alliance with ZANU PF that they should leave the party.
Chamisa said this on Friday while officially opening the MDC Midlands caucus in Gweru. He said:
We are changing the direction of the party. We will no longer just walk with anyone. We will scrutinise our leaders. We need genuine cadres.
At the congress, we are going to tie to the plough the oxen that pull. If you are a cadre working with our enemy, we will not tolerate.
This is a people’s party. We want to start counting each other. Those who are not with us can go out. This party is now too strong, it will not split.
Some MDC bigwigs are suspected of working with ZANU PF to destabilise the party.
Secretary general Douglas Mwonzora, who recently met ZANU PF-sympathetic MDC-T president Thokozani Khupe over High Court Judge Justice’ ruling, has denied any links with the ruling party.
